SZ 38, waist feels like 36/37
Thanks Greg and Henryboogers. Ask and ye shall receive...
I could not get a good pix of the inside of the shoe, but it reads: 10 E/C 20263148
then space down flush right sort of: 23731
Dayum. Braver man than I that could pull those off. Very cool looking though.
Dang - wish it were like that here! We have a boutique called Second Debut and the managers comb each rack of clothes over before sending them out onto the floor. At certain stores (in the high end areas), they do know what they're doing too.
If they did it here as they do where you live, there would be a better chance at scoring something. Here the stuff doesn't even see the sales floor.
100.0% certain those are not shell. Still decent looking shoes...
In these pictures look at the microcreases. You do not get them in shell. Those hills and valleys happen both in shell and corrected grain leather, especially when shoe trees are underutilizrd or shoes are big. Sometimes people overuse wax polish and they accumulate in the valleys. These might give the impression of a microcrease in a photo. I think yours are just plain microcrease. So I still think they are not.
A more definite resource than me would be to post them at AAAC forum, shell or not thread. Guys there are really good. Some of my tradly brethren there are also here (since thrifting is definitely trad!! ), and they may chime in.
Here is a pair of Shells for comparison. See how there are no microcreases, but there are still ripples.
Apt terminology for pants like these = Church pants, or so I have been told. Looking to flip em though, rise too high for me, and they fit for a slimmer waist.
Thanks guys re. my non shells. They are going back unless there's any interest here. A little too big for me.

I'm thinking $30 + actual shipping... let me know.
This goes back to the post from yesterday...did this turn from the "thrift bragging thread" to the "what did I thrift, how much is it worth and does anyone want to buy them thread"? Or am I totally off base?
I figure everyone was just too shy to ask so here's my buck fitties.
Spoiler: Warning: Extreme close up
$145 for the real thing at J.Crew. I may have to take the plunge.
found recently: two pendleton shirts. one 100% wool long sleeve, the other 100% cotton short sleeve. both in perfect condition and the fit is the dog's bollocks. i need more pendleton in my life.
dude nice finds, but your username irks me so much
yeah, that was kind of the direction I was headed... I might even throw in that Harris Tweed coat for "cheap" if you come up with something, though!
Tonight's haul out of three stores, but most of it out of just one... guys, you know how Nataku and Mainy remind everyone to "hit up the same store" - they don't mean "a couple of days later" THEY MEAN TOMORROW. Here's what I pulled out of that one store that I got the Canali Sport pants from yesterday (which nobody commented on the tag of, has nobody seen it?):
7 for All Mankind jeans size 31 (not pictured, available)
J.W. Nordstrom 94% wool 6% cashmere Loro Piana fabric flat front pants... model name "Duncan" - am I wrong in thinking these could be made by Zanella? Already taken.
Just a label shot if anyone has any ideas/thoughts on it:
Recent black label Corneliani suit, size 54R IT (44R US), super 100's, side vented, available:
NWT Alan Flusser 100% cashmere sweater, size L, available:
And out of another store...
This nifty pair of H.S. Trask bison leather boots. Size 7.5M... didn't realize how small they were but they're nifty and available!
Does this tag mean Golden Fleece, or is it just regular BB?
